"Believe" in plaid



Hi everyone! We are having a cold rainy day here, but both my kids are off at preschool, so I'm happy! I've been trying to make a card for a few days now, but nothing seemed to be working...tried different colors, different stamps, it all looked bad! I'm not super excited about this card, but at least I finished one, LOL! Hopefully I'll be feeling more inspired soon!



Believe or not, the plaid (from Waltzingmouse Stamps) is stamped with Enchanted Evening and raspberry fizz--it looks more like Scarlet Jewel to me, so I think I may have overdone it with the reinker, oops! The Santa and sentiment are from Believe (PTI).

Thanks for looking!
Melissa
